About the program
Preferred sites have been identified for Bribie Island and Ripley with preliminary feedback currently being sought. Find out more.
The Satellite Hospital Programs (SHP) is a $265 million Queensland Government commitment to deliver seven new facilities to support public healthcare delivery in rapidly growing communities across South East Queensland.
Each facility will provide healthcare services that are more appropriately delivered in the community, closer to home and in a more convenient setting, and:
- will deliver a range of services informed by the needs of the local community
- incorporates outpatient community-based health services with virtual healthcare opportunities to service the local community
- could include simple day therapy services such as chemotherapy, complex wound management, renal dialysis, and care for minor injuries or illnesses.
Consultation and planning for each facility, including the services to be provided, is currently underway.
Once appropriate sites are identified and secured for acquisition, a Ministerial Infrastructure Designation (MID) will be sought for each site and public consultation will be undertaken as part of the MID process.
